Mongolian Yurt with Sauna and Hot Tub (1 at Westland Farm)
The Owner Says
Get back to nature and stay in a traditional Mongolian Yurt. Sleeps up to 5
Our yurt set privately in a 3 acre field next to a babbling stream, at the bottom of the farm where there are lovely views of the surrounding North Devon Countryside. The yurt comes exclusively with it's own shower and toilet, kitchen shed, firepit, hot tub and new for 2020 a wood fired sauna. Couples and families can enjoy the peace and tranquillity away from the stresses and strains of everyday life.
Walk over the wooden bridge to the yurt, children can play in the stream, add some more stones to the dam or just run around the 3 acre field.
Lit with candles and lamps and heated by a wood burning stove, the yurt has a double bed, a single and a 4ft futon. All bedding is supplied, you just need to bring towels (a torch and wellies are also a good idea.) Although let for four the yurt can sleep more comfortably. Extras are charged at a small fee per person per night. Unfortunately we are unable to accomodate dogs in the yurt, however our shepherd hut and drovers hut are pet friendly. You are also welcome to pitch tents by the yurt for a small charge. Back at the farmhouse there is also a bed and breakfast room available for non-glamping friends or relatives.
Just outside the yurt is the lovely new kitchen bothy and real flushing loo! In the Kitchen Bothy there's a Belfast sink with running water, a gas hob and grill, pots and pans, cutlery and crockery for six, a bbq, coolbox, all you need to cook and eat your meals. Also outside, by the stream is a private fire pit for your own use, no need to share with other campers and glampers.
A short walk away, at the top of the field, past the chickens from whom you are welcome to collect fresh eggs for your breakfast, are the toilets, showers, fridge freezer, washing machine, tumble drier and hair drier point
Logs are available at £6 for a large net, payable on site.
Thinking of having a party, reunion or family get together? You can hire the yurt and the whole field and facilities for your party for a very reasonable price. PLEASE SEE OUR GROUP BOOKINGS PAGE
